A Greek word thusiasterion, which is derived from thusiazo meaning “to sacrifice.” The altar is a raised place on which sacrifices were made to God (Genesis 4:3; 8:20; Matthew 5:23-24; 23: 18-20, 35; Luke 11:51). A sacrifice that establishes communion between God and those who eat the thing offered. Christians during communion symbolically partake of the Lords body until He returns to take us home or calls us hither to be with Him. The Cross of Christ caused Him to be raised (nailed above the ground) as the sacrifice (atonement) for the sins mankind. The Infinite God-Christ became the altar of infinite sacrifice.
